Cecily Paterson grew up as an expat in Pakistan until the age of 16. She went to a British day school and then an international boarding school so her accent has always been a bit of a mix.

She studied french, law and politics and university before getting into editing, where she's stayed ever since.

Cecily has wanted to be a bestselling author since the age of 8 when she won the White Essay Cup at her school, beating 10 and 11 year olds to the prize.

She writes (mostly) contemporary, warmhearted fiction for girls aged 11-14.

She is the mother of four children and lives in a beautiful little tourist town in New South Wales, Australia.

Okay. First up, in case there are any of MY family members reading this, THIS IS NOT ABOUT YOU. Be reassured, Mum, Dad, brothers, everyone else vaguely or distantly sharing blood. Sit down. Breathe deeply. It's alright. I love you. I'll phone you. Mwah mwah mwah.

Now that's sorted out, we can get on with the post.

I get asked tricky questions every so often, and the most recent was this: "How am...

This is an interesting and different Christian fiction offering. Thought-provoking and intriguing, especially the bible storytelling parts. definitely worth a read even if Christian writing isn't normally your thing.

“I know things have been hard for you. I'm not saying that's an excuse. There's never an excuse for doing the wrong thing, but sometimes people need a little more support if they've been through some tough times.”
Cecily Anne Paterson, Invisible

“If I start to write down my feelings, isn't that the same as writing down my problems? Won't it be dangerous? What if then I feel like I need to tell someone my problems? Will they be angry? Will they leave? "It's just a book", I tell myself. "It's just a book and a book can't leave me. A book can't decide who it wants to be with. The worst that can happen is I don't do it anymore, right? I'll give it a try.”
Cecily Anne Paterson, Invisible

“You have this thing called a life. It’s only you that gets to live it and you only get to do it one time.”
Cecily Anne Paterson, Invisible

Cecily Paterson I know Duane. I wanted to slightly distinguish between my teenage fiction (with the Anne) and my adult/spiritul non-fiction (without the Anne). Don't know how much of a good idea that is, but oh well!


message 1: by Duane

Duane Cecily, you are listed twice on Goodreads, one with the Anne, the other without. You probably know that already but I'm easily confused. Thanks for the recommendation on your new book, I found it on Amazon Kindle and just started reading. Good luck and thanks again.
Duane
